Original Painting on Canvas | 80x80cm
A painting of the iconic Poolbeg Towers of Dublin and the Bull Wall wooden bridge as seen from Sandymount strand. The ‘Poolbeg towers’ or the ‘two chimneys’ as many Irish people would know them as, at just over 207 metres, are visible over much of Dublin, making them well-known landmarks and some of the tallest structures in Ireland. Whether you’re on the coast enjoying the view, or coming in from your holidays, nothing says home like the two horizontally striped towers on the edge of the county. So if you love the towers as much as I do, or if you’re just missing home, this is an ideal gift for anyone from Dublin.
The Blue Room: Making Sense
'A symbolic representation of a literal and metaphoric withdrawal from the external landscape to the internal room. A paradoxical setting up and breaking down of boundaries; green and blue borders defining a frame around a 'view' or idea, this painting can represent a life now brighter and more present in a living and dying environment, learning to find mystery and comfort in it as the cycle of nature continues. A space of imagination and wonder resides in the blue room.' - Orfhlaith

A red sky is the backdrop to a re-imagined fjord at a time when the world is at a crossroads between climate change and the depletion of natural resources. A painting of a red atmosphere loaded with dust and moisture particles not unlike the atmosphere on the planet Mars, a warning or a delight, for some representing new beginnings, determination and fast-paced change, for others associated with fire, which can be seen as a cleansing force just as much as a destructive force. The greenish-blue represents verdigris, formed when copper, brass or bronze is weathered and exposed to air or seawater over time. Our landscapes are experiencing continued emission of greenhouse gases leading to further warming and long-lasting changes in the climate system and should galvanize us to act in order not to pass through tipping points beyond which certain impacts can no longer be avoided. Our stressful everyday life would benefit from a slower pace and thoughtful living in our shared environments. It's a beautiful world still.
